Activists stage anti-nuke protest

What's the area code?
University vice-presidents are busy persons, and they are often
difficult to reach by telephone. Thursday we called Vice-president for
Financial Affairs James Brinkerhoff's office, and were informed by a
secretary that Brinkerhoff was in a meeting and would return the call
later. We repeated the process several times, and were greeted with
the same response. When the vice-president failed to call by yesterday
afternoon, we doggedly tried the office again, and this time a different
secretary answered the phone. She also said Brinkerhoff was
unavailable, but offered a new excuse. She didn't deny that
Brinkerhoff was in a meeting - he may well have been. The only
problem was that meeting would have to be in Chine where the vice-
president had been since Monday. But we don't mean to impugn the
integrity of the original secretary. Perhaps Brinkerhoff is still waiting
for an open line to return our call. How much is a three minute call
from Shanghai to Ann Arbor?
Correction
Yesterday's article about the Regent's reaction to the last MSA
resolution misstated the contents of the resolution. The story said the
resolution called for written guarantees from the Regents that the
presidential selection process allow for a fourth group composed of
students, faculty and alumni which would narrow down the candidates
and send a final list to the Regents. Actually, the resolution said MSA
would also accept a written guarantee of formal discussion between
the groups in place of a specific fourth committee. The article also
said that a second demand - that the Regents divulge their own list to
the three committees - was an alternative to the first. The resolution
actually called for both changes.
'U'dean nominated
David Ragone, University Dean of the College of Engineering, was
among seven persons listed by President Carter for a nomination to a
six-year term on the National Science Board. The National Science
Board is the -policy-making board for the National Science
Foundation. If Carter's appointment gains Senate confirmation,
Ragone will join the 24-member board which already includes two
people with University ties: William Htubbard, Jr., former Dean of the
Medical School and director of the Medical Center, and James
Zumberge, former professor of geology.
Maybe he prints his own
While you football-starved fans are paying 20 bucks or even more for
a ticket to Saturday's football clash with the green and white,
University Athletic Director Don Canham is so sympathetic that he's
giving them away ... well, at least to his personal friends. The story
goes that after Canham padded his accoun( at his favorite Huron
Valley National Bank branch recently, he asked his regular clerk how
many tickets she wanted for today's grudge match. "Ten," she
jokingly replied, and low-and-behold Canham produced 10 tickets for
the happy clerk. Hey, gimme five, willya Don?

On October 14, 1968, Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity withdrew its
candidate for homecoming queen because "the questions the judging
panel asked her were abusive and plainly discriminatory." Janice
Parker, a member of the all-black Delta Sigma Theta, said, "I was
being judged as a black and not as Jan. They asked me questions like
'What special advantages does being black give you in getting good
grades or getting along with professors?"

Papal prin tout
A University of Chicago computer held its own conclave and has
picked a new pope - Cardinal Corrado Ursi of Naples. The papal
choice was made Thursday under the direction of Jesuit sociologist
Rev. Andrew Greeley, who programmed the computer with the
cardinals' positions on the 15 issues facing the church, along with their
relative power and influence. Greeley said before the last conclave the
computer outdid most Vatican prophets and rated Cardinal Albino
Luciani, who eventually became Pope John Paul I, third. This new
prediction came 48 hours before the start of the real conclave.

It appears that all the heat will be on the football field today, as it
will be on the cool and cloudy side. High temperature will just hit 50,

with a low in the mid-to-upper 30s.

PENDLETON RM.OF
THE UNION
THE BIG ILACIz-OFU

By DENNIS SABO
Wearing makeshift skeleton masks,
about 15 persons staged a "die-in" next
to Ann Arbor's Detroit Edison building
yesterday to protest Edison's con-
struct ion of nuclear power plants.
The anti-nuclear group, Arbor Alliance,
pretested at the Edison building at
William and Main Streets to draw at-
tention to the construction of the Fermi
II nuclear power plant in Monroe.
It was the last day of a week long
protest.
"THEY (EDISON) are just a bunch
of business people trying to play the
game they were taught to play-trying
to maximize profits," said Tad Wysor,
Alliance coordinator.
The corpose-like poses were
representative of possible radiation
victims if a nuclear accident were to
occur at the uncompleted Fermi II
plant, Wysor said.
Edison officials maintain that an ac-
cident at the $1 billion plant is unlikely.
Fermi I, the new plant's predecessor,
was shut-down in 1966 following a
near melt-down. Although a nuclear
disaster never occurred, an accident at
the plant could have released
dangerous amounts of radiation in the
area, opponents claim.
CLOSE TO 10 University students
and others who belong to the Arbor
Alliance expressed fear of the same
sort of catastrophe occurring at Fermi
II, which is located within one mile of
Fermi I.
"We don't have anything against
Detroit Edison, except that they're the
ones building the plants," said John
Valentine, a medical science graduate
studen.
The biggest problem facing the
4 group, according to its members, is to
inform others of the dangers of nuclear
power.
"STUDENTS ARE fairly apathetic,"
!Valentine said. "Our biggest problem is
mass education."
A number of passing vehicles, in-
cludingsemi-tractor trailers and school
buses, blared their horns to "Honk to
No Nukes" signs held by the protestors.

Inside, Edison employees remained
amused by the protestors.
"We feel they have a right to present
their views," said Bob Veenstra,
Edison director of customer and
marketing services. "They haven't
disrupted ouir business, but we don't
agree with them."
EDISON STANDS committed to the
idea that "nuclear energy is the
solution to the energy problem" in view
of depleted fossil fuel resources, Veen-
stra said.
Carfon Foltz, an Alliance member
and retired Methodist minister, said the
group was adequately voicing its
opinion by using non-violent tactics.
"We are opposed to violence," Foltz
said. "They learned violence didn't do
the thing in Vietnam War protests. It
was only counter-productive."
Last Saturday, the group staged a
protest at the Fermi II plant. Another
demonstration is set for Nov. 18.

Cancer programs OK'd
The University Hospit l was recent-

Love finds its way between Robert DeNiro and Liza Minelli as World War II
ends and be-bop picks up the slack. DeNiro is intense as a swinging young
jazz musician climbing the ladder of fame and fortune. Scorsese, whose
THE LAST WALTZ is further testament to his sensitivity with musical material

Although the Cinci formula is secret, certain factors in the
equation are well known:
1. Cinci has a hearty, full-bodied flavor.
2. It is smooth and easy going down.
3. Its head commands respect.
Our theory is that Einstein would have concluded: Its too good to
gulp. Relatively speaking, of course.
